48" Exmark metro?

How well does the 48" Exmark metro do in wet grass, and does it stripe well. I'm considering buying one of last years models, it has a 15hp Kawasaki. They want $2895 I think was the price. Give me some input on them. I bought a 32" metro late in the fall, seems like a good little mower. I need something with a good cutting deck. I'm tired of the old Toro SFS deck I been using.

All of the exmark decks struggle in the wet grass(unfortunately), but all stripe extremely well. Its a great deck overall. Doesnt clump very much. That seems like a great price!!

The pistol grip control are bad. I have 48" metro with a 16 kawi for sale with 133 hours on it, extra set of blades and a side discharge control for $2500 so sounds like a good price. Just make sure it has the upgraded hand controls.

I think I will save some money and buy a used one. Either an Exmark metro hp, or a turf tracer.
